    Haha...We caught a boat load last weekend in NC mostly on rooster tails. I had planned to fly fish some, but ended up all ultralight throwing a variety of stuff. It's one of my favorite things to do during the Summer months.

    Totally agree with this. I missed them last time, but always try to stop by a local shop if at all possible, even if I’m not fishing.

    If I park at Burrell's Ford, which direction should I go on the trail with a better chance of escaping people and having better stretch of fishable river? the one time i've been, I went north towards Ellicott.

    fishing or camping? I see fires only permitted in existing rings, no camping within 50 feet of river, etc. For fishing regs, all i can find online is "A valid South Carolina fishing license is required to fish on the national forests. Detailed rules and regulations are posted on information boards". I'll check the boards at the trailhead and the fly shop will hopefully have something printed. Anything in particular that i should look for or be aware of?

    Get a regulations book and keep it with you. Blows my mind the number of people that don’t ever read the damn thing.

    glad you pointed that out. I was operating under the impression it was still catch and release on artificial only. Would have found out differently at the fly shop, but not in time to pack some aluminum foil, evoo, salt, and lemon pepper. preciate it.

    I haven't fished that river in years, but I remember having a box full of mostly gold ribbed hare's ears from #10 to #14. Non-weighted, weighted, and bead headed. A few wooly boogers, and some elk hair caddis for dry fishing. But that was a lonnnng time ago, but I'm gonna try and go back soon.

    We fished the river in June last year and picked a bad day. The Kayaktards were bank to bank.

    I did have one nice hole south of Burrell's Ford full of little Brook trout and SNITs that kept me entertained for a while ..with the no rain in the forecast for the next few weeks, the fishing should be good until the 02 levels drop due to the increasing temperature of water and flow level decreases.

    I did watch a 10 year old kid catch about a 20" Brown that he sight cast to and teased into a strike. He handled the fish like a pro. That was fun. It's a beautiful river for sure.

    Snuck away from work this morning for about an hour. Caught 13 all on top. Nothing big but still a good morning for a work day.

    I went to private water by my house yesterday afternoon to fly fish for the first time this year ... I remembered very quickly I suck at it. Saw a good bit of fish though. I'll go back to them tonight with an ultra light and finish what I started.
